Why does resource monitor for network show BOINC connected to www.8minutedating.com? I even have SETI project suspended and it still shows activity to that address. If I exit out of BOINC it goes away.

Resource Monitor
Network
Image Address
boincmgr.exe www.8minutedating.com
boinc.exe www.8minutedating.com

Any ideas?

Obviously malware. Have you ran a scan of your system lately?

I have ran many scans and nothing. I guess it is not only showing BOINC connecting to that address but also IE, FireFox. Even sometimes is lists some image of mcafee connected to that address.

Use either Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or Superantispyware, or both. These do detect and remove all those pesky bits of spyware that your AV and other AM scanners let stay on your system.
